Check its antenna connection for any loose contact. If it is alright, the tuner inside the tV is faulty, and should be repalced.

The issue you describe is consistent with a power supply board issue. This is the board where the AC goes to. This problem may have occurred as a result of irregular power supply, or excess power supply or power surge.

The TV is receiving current but cannot circulate or transfer the current to other necessary part of the TV because of the defective power supply board. You might be lucky it's just a blow fuse. Also a defective transformer can cause your TV not to power on.

All these can be checked on the power supply board.

But more often bad capacitors causes problem on the power supply board. I do not think the power board needs replacement, rather those defective capacitors is causing this issue. Open unit up and take a look at the power supply board.You will probably see one or more electrolytic filter capacitors that are bulged up in the top-not perfectly flat like the others.

The value of these capacitors will be different, most likely they will be somewhere around-820 to 2200uF/25 V( or /10V sometimes)

You can replace them with same values but I would recommend the voltage rating to be higher(like 35V for an original 25V) for reliability purposes.

What happens is,these bulged top capacitors will cause a low and unfiltered DC voltage=main board will malfunction(the relay will keep clicking until the caps are holding enough charge to bring the voltage up over a threshold point).

You can buy these capacitors at any Fry's or Radioshack store or you can order them online at vendors like ""(look for electrolytic capacitors). After replacing these capacitor(capacitors) most likely the normal operation will be restored. Or you can by a refurbished complete power board to save you some stress.

Note: There may be also some other causes for this symptom ,like a defective T con board ,or main board,but the bulged top capacitors are the most common cause for this issue.

If you don't know about TV repairers, take the TV to the nearest repairman to fix the fault for you. Also, note that TV stores a lot of current, so wait a while before opening the TV back cover.

I hope this helps.

This tv is a analoge CRT tube tv?Yes,not likely to find one out there in the internet land.Because these tv boards or parts not in productions anymore.Tries tvs local repairs shops are ur best chances for repairing analoge CRT tube tv,compare for the prices between a new LCD tv and repairing the old CRT analoge tube tv and u decide,which it better deal fo u.

On the side of the TV there are a set of buttons. An Input button is next to the Menu button and will let you access the different sources connected to the TV. For the front panel input, look for the source labeled Front. (There are also volume control and channel +/- buttons.) The button order is Input, Menu, Vol -, Vol +, Ch -, Ch +.

If you want, you can get a substitute remote that is guaranteed to match the original remote's features here: .

I hope this wants.

Your tv has a power supply fault, take it to repair shop and have it repaired
ask the technician to check the following components
semi conductors around the supply section, also ask him to check the (ht) high tension voltage which triggers a line transformer which in turn gives small outputs voltages to power the tv.

there is not a reset button. in these models the transformer does not last.I would contact a servicer in your area.

If there is no power at all , then it is a power adapter problem.

Test the TV on a different outlet, and if the power cord is fused check the fuse inside power plug.

If this does not fix the problem, then usually the TV has a faulty power board.

If the TV has no power at all, not even the led light on, and does not respond to remote or button, then the most common is a faulty power board inside the tv.

the tv has one part of the power supply working this is needed to have the microcontroller ready to work. But the tv needs more than that for work im talking 'bout the high voltage power supply who is now damaged. the parts required depends on the diagnosis in the bench but at least two are needed. the cost of this repair of course depends in how many parts are going to be replaced, but i concider this repair kind of average in this technology.

Hello Rick008,

Try they have a wide range of parts. Just make sure to match the IHVT properly.

Thank you,

ca you tell me what is exactly trouble in your television!?


RCA 32V524T TV | 583 views | 0 helpful votes

If the TV goes in standby, then it is in protection mode.

Ensure also that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending
bad signal, check if you get same problem on DVD with no receiver box

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then the TV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

On LCD Pay particular attention at inverter and power board, power board can be inspected looking for bulged or leaking capacitors, then tested with a multimeter. The inverter is more difficult to test , there is need to read voltages, should be done by a tech. Also the LCD controller board can cause same problem

On Plasma, test Sustain (Ysus/Zsus) / Buffer boards , cables to plasma, digital board and power board.

On Rear Projection : check lamp, lamp ballast, power board, and convergence.

On CRT TVs, check ballast , flyback transformer, CRT, Tuner, Convergence.

Hello cote,

This indicates a problem in the power supply either the low voltage switching supply or the High voltage power supply. The sounds you hear is the shutdown circuit activating, I would not suggest that you try to repair this problem because of the dangers involved. I would suggest that you take it to a qualified TV repair shop. This problem should not cost you much, however it is the best choice for the problem you described.

I hope this helps,
Thank you,

I decided not to sign up at this time for premium assistance because I know that it is either related to flyback transformer or regulator. Because I do not have required test equipment to perceive which, I opted to take it to the shop.

Most likely the TV is detecting an internal problem with it's circuitry and is shutting itself off to prevent further damage. You'll need to have a professional look at your set to determine exacly what's going on. Aside from leaving the power cord unplugged for five minutes, then pluggin back in and trying it again, there's nothing anyone can do from here. It may work, but it's a long shot.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice, good OR bad.

Good luck!
